This has come up before, but maybe now is the time to send those suggestions in to Google. It would be a nice tribute if the Google logo were to be themed as an homage to Ray and his work. Here's the…Continue

Okay, I know I'm not anywhere near the class of most everyone else posting here, but here's a test of an armature for a new figure. Seems to work okay, although the neck doesn't seem long enough to…Continue

"I agree. There were some shots where it was very obvious what was going on with the faces. Compared with the smoothness of the body animation, it was a bit jarring. Although I do think it was partially the design of the characters. Lord…"

Aging Harryhausen Fanboy

I've been a stop motion fan since 1975, when the reissue of Ray Harryhausen's 7th Voyage of Sinbad made it to the Capitol Theater in Yakima, Washington. I had to sit through a boring John Wayne movie to see it, but it was worth the wait. I've been walking on my toes with my arms pitched back ever since.

After 30 years, I finally got back to actually producing my own humble stopmo films. The first is called Eye of God, and is currently trying to weedle its way into film festivals. You can see it here:
